WE'RE almost certainly less than a year away from a new Apple iPhone.
After all, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro are finally behind us – which means the iPhone 15 can't be far away.
Apple launched four new iPhones in September 2022, so we won't see a new model any time soon.
But it's almost certain that Apple will unveil the iPhone 15 in 2023.
We could see a brand new design, camera improvements, faster processing and more.
The quality of iPhone 15 leaks won't be particularly good until a few months before the launch.
So until then, you'll just have to pen a wishlist of new features you'd like to see – and maybe you can mail it to Apple HQ.
Predicting the iPhone 15 features at this point is hard, but guessing the release date is much easier.
Apple tends to stick to the same rough release schedule each year.
The big launch event always takes place in September, and generally falls early on in the month – on a Tuesday or Wednesday, typically.
For 2023, the most likely iPhone 15 reveal dates would be either Tuesday, September 12 or Wednesday, September 13.
The Wednesday might seem likelier, if only to put a bit of breathing room between the iPhone launch and September 11, an important day of remembrance for the 9/11 World Trade Centre tragedy.
Then we'd likely see iPhone 15 pre-orders going live on Friday, September 15.
This would probably be followed by the rollout of the next iOS software update (iOS 17?) on Monday, September 18.
Next we'd suspect that iPhone 15 reviews would drop on Wednesday, September 20.
And finally, the iPhone 15 release date would likely fall on Friday, September 22.
Of course, Apple could shift this entire process one week earlier (like it did for the 2022 release), but the rough format will almost certainly remain the same.
Sadly it's impossible to say what Apple's exact iPhone 15 plans are.
We won't know until much closer to the date, and the entire truth won't be revealed until the actual Apple event keynote itself.
Until then, take all rumours, leaks and predictions with a pinch of salt.
Some of the iPhone 15 features are easy enough to guess.
They'll almost certainly all support 5G internet, as all new models have since the iPhone 12.
And we'll probably see a new (and faster) A17 chip – although this could be limited to Pro models only.
Apple will introduce a new core software update too, likely called iOS 17.
An early tip from @LeaksApplePro on Twitter suggests that we might see the Pro Max model swapped for an Ultra.
And this would also mean that it's got some extra features, in addition to simply having a bigger screen.
A separate prediction from industry consultant Ross Young claims that we'll see Dynamic Island available on all new iPhone 15 models.
That's the small interactive cut-out for Face ID and the selfie camera that replaces the old notch.
Currently it's only available on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, but not the regular iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.
Other likely improvements include a better camera and potentially more storage as default (possibly starting at 256GB).
